ALL THESE THINGS I'VE DONE 
BIRTHRIGHT - VOLUME ONE 
BY GABRIELLE ZEVIN

ABOUT THE BOOK:
In 2083, chocolate and coffee are illegal, paper is hard to find, water is carefully rationed, and New York City is rife with crime and poverty. And yet, for Anya Balanchine, the sixteen-year-old daughter of the city's most notorious (and dead) crime boss, life is fairly routine. It consists of going to school, taking care of her siblings and her dying grandmother, trying to avoid falling in love with the new assistant D.A.'s son, and avoiding her loser ex-boyfriend. That is until her ex is accidentally poisoned by the chocolate her family manufactures and the police think she's to blame. Suddenly, Anya finds herself thrust unwillingly into the spotlight--at school, in the news, and most importantly, within her mafia family.

Gabrielle Zevin introduces readers to an unforgettable teenage heroine in a groundbreaking new series!


PRAISE FOR ALL THESE THINGS I'VE DONE:
“The audio really added a great element to this story that I think you’ll miss out on if you don’t listen. If you get the chance, I would definitely recommend picking up the audio for this one!” Reading Teen
“The talented Zevin writes Anya and Win’s high-wire romance as jolting for both the participants and readers.” --Booklist, starred review
“…the achingly realistic romance between this latter-day Romeo and Juliet, told in Anya’s earnest voice, will attract readers as surely as chocolate attracts…mobsters.” Horn Book Magazine

“In Gabrielle Zevin's All These Things I've Done, we fast-forward to 2083. Chocolate and coffee are contraband (can you imagine?!), paper and water are scarce, and New York is crawling with crime and poverty. But this is normal for sixteen-year-old Anya Balachine, daughter of the city's late crime boss. Until, that is, the chocolate her family manufactures accidentally poisons her ex and all fingers are pointed at her.” TeenVogue.com

“The love story’s to die for, and the tangled web of relationships will keep readers intrigued to the last page.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Offering the excitement of a crime drama and the allure of forbidden romance, this introduction to a reluctant Godfather-in-the making will pique the interest of dystopia-hungry readers.” Publishers Weekly

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

She was also the screenwriter for Conversations with Other Women, which received an Independent Spirit Award nomination.
